HeartWare International Reports Second Quarter 2011 Revenues of $20.4 Million; 109% Increase From $9.8 Million in Second Quarter 2010

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. and SYDNEY, Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- HeartWare International, Inc. (NASDAQ: HTWR; ASX: HIN), a leading innovator of less invasive, miniaturized circulatory support technologies that are revolutionizing the treatment of advanced heart failure, today announced revenues of $20.4 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.  This represents a 109 percent increase from $9.8 million in revenues for the same period of 2010.  For the six months ended June 30, 2011, the Company generated revenues of $38.4 million, compared to $20.5 million in the first half of 2010.

"During the second quarter, we generated global sales for the HeartWare® Ventricular Assist System of 226 units, up from 207 units in the first quarter of 2011, and up from 116 units in the second quarter of 2010.  In international markets, we are fortunate to have the strong support of our 64 customers in 20 countries, with 152 pumps sold to customers outside of the U.S.," stated Doug Godshall, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "The international markets accounted for 69 percent, or approximately $14.1 million, of our 2011 second quarter revenues, up from $7.9 million in the second quarter of 2010."

"In the U.S., where second quarter revenues more than tripled to $6.3 million compared to $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2010, we now have 47 of the planned 50 U.S. sites approved for implantation in our 450-patient destination therapy study, and 189 patients have been randomized and enrolled," added Mr. Godshall.  "In the second quarter, enrollment in our destination therapy study climbed nearly 50 percent from first quarter levels, from 43 to 63 patients. Enrollment in the 94-patient Continued Access Protocol (CAP) allotment under our bridge-to-transplant clinical study decreased from 29 patients in the first quarter 2011 to 22 patients enrolled in the second quarter of 2011."

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2011 were $20.2 million, compared to $15.2 million in the same period of 2010.  Research and development expense was $10.3 million for the second quarter of 2011, compared to $7.5 million in the same period of 2010, primarily attributable to the Company's ongoing Pre-Market Approval application process and increased expenditure on HeartWare's pipeline technologies, including the commencement of final preclinical testing for the next generation MVAD platform.  Selling, general and administrative expenses were $9.9 million in the second quarter of 2011, compared to $7.7 million in the second quarter of 2010.  The increase reflects continued corporate growth to support expanding commercialization activities outside of the U.S. and the need to support clinicians in a larger number of centers around the globe.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2011 was $10.1 million, or a $0.73 loss per basic and diluted share, compared to a $10.0 million net loss, or a loss of $0.73 per basic and diluted share, in the second quarter of 2010.  For the six months ended June 30, 2011, the Company recorded a net loss of $19.5 million, or a $1.40 loss per basic and diluted share, compared to a $14.5 million net loss, or a loss of $1.09 per basic and diluted share, in the first half of 2010.

At June 30, 2011, the Company's balance sheet showed $198.8 million in cash, cash equivalents and investments, compared to $217.5 million at December 31, 2010.  The decrease in cash, cash equivalents and investments in the six month period primarily reflects the purchase and manufacture of inventories of $7.5 million, the purchase of property, plant and equipment of $4.7 million and a semi-annual interest payment of $2.5 million related to the Company's convertible senior notes.
